A Cookbook Review...
I hate doing product reviews. Generally all of the stuff that I receive to do a review on is some sort of processed food and I usually have a hard time finding something nice to say about it. I did like this stuff though and was pleasantly surprised! So when I was contacted a while ago by the girls (Michelle Huxtable and Alyse Christensen) at The Gathering of Friends, to review their new cookbook I was pretty excited. How bad could it be. I like new recipes and love cookbooks.
Well let me tell you...I LOVE this book. It has a unique set up and one that I was using when I first started this blog. A recipe and at the end a shopping list of everything you will need. They take it a step further and do it by menu. You have the whole theme laid out in front of you, menu and all and then the recipes (each with a beautiful photograph) and at the end of that theme you have the shopping list and they have left room for comment and a spot to help you organize yourself! These girls have thought of everything.
Did I mention how beautiful it is? Go to their site and check it out for yourself. The Gathering of Friends. My only wish is that they had of sent me an extra copy to give away...hint, hint!
Thanks for the book ladies it will be well used!!!

Judy, J-U-D-Y ans in Judy, there's nothing wrong with saying "no thank you" to products you would never apporve of.
Books like these however are of benefit to us. I could use right about now.
Hola darling! I took a look at their web page and looks so cozy and nice! I bet the book is full of wonderful recipes :D
Hey Peter-It really is a good book with full menus and all. Everything comes together so nice at the end!
Hey Nuria-Isn't it so warm and inviting!
Thanks for the insight - I always love to hear what others think before I rush to the store to purchase.
I'm with you. I've only done one product review (which was actually a pretty good product) but I didn't like the feeling of having to try to find nice things to say. I pretty much say 'no thank you' to anything but cookbooks now. Will check this one out!
Glad to hear you took a look at this one. I'll now give it a closer glance!
I think the book offers of reviews are the best anyway!
Thanks because I am looking for a new cookbook to buy. I just bought my first one last week. Shhh - don't tell anyone - lol.
I'll look for this book! I like how the setup of it sounds! Thanks for the review!
This looks like a nice cookbook for my collection.
Thanks for the recommendation!
